Vitamin D3

The “sunshine vitamin”

Vitamin D is also referred to as the “sunshine vitamin”, as the body can produce it by itself through exposure to sunlight. UVB radiation causes a provitamin to be generated in the skin. As a result of body heat, the active vitamin D3 is then produced.

Studies over the past few years have verified that a large proportion of the population has a vitamin D deficiency.
Why is that?

On the one hand, many people are inside much of the time and rarely get out in the fresh air.

On the other hand, sunscreens with a high sun protection factor are frequently used to protect the skin. This results in impaired formation of vitamin D. A sunscreen with a protection factor of 8 already has this effect.

Women who wear headscarves or veils receive hardly any UVB radiation. They usually demonstrate a striking vitamin D deficiency.

Occurrence: Besides the body’s own production of vitamin D, which makes up 80 - 90 % of the supply, it can also be obtained through our diet. The main sources are cod liver oil, fish and ‒ to a lesser extent ‒ milk, cheese and eggs.

Importance of vitamin D3

  • For the skeletal system: One of the main tasks of vitamin D is to channel calcium into the bones. This assists in developing and strengthening the skeletal system of the growing child.
    Important: Adequate amounts of calcium should be available! You should therefore ensure your diet is calcium-rich, containing milk and dairy products. Kale also contains plenty of calcium.
  • For the immune system: Vitamin D is decisive in supporting the immune system.
  • For muscle function: The interaction of muscles and muscle strength is promoted with a good vitamin D supply.

Why is vitamin D3 so important during pregnancy?

With an adequate supply of vitamin D, pregnant women can reduce the risks of certain complications during pregnancy (e.g. gestational diabetes or the risk of a premature birth).

Besides this, studies have also shown that the allergy rate among children is lower if their mothers had sufficient levels of vitamin D during pregnancy.
